Saint John, NB – Irving Oil has been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for the seventh year in a row, a testament to the company’s continued focus on its employees’ wellbeing, its flexible workplaces and its forward-thinking programs.

The Canada’s Top 100 Employers project is a national competition – now celebrating its 23rd year – which recognizes the companies and organizations that lead their industries in creating progressive and innovative workplaces for their employees. With more than 1,000 applicants this year, employers were evaluated on criteria such as employee communications, performance management, training opportunities and benefits programming.

“This recognition is for the people across our operations who spend every day making our organization a leader in our industry,” says Ian Whitcomb, President of Irving Oil. “Their dedication supports the important work our company is doing on our energy transition journey and to safely and reliably serve our customers. It is an honor to work with them.”

“We're very thankful for the great team we have at Irving Oil and are honored to receive this special award," says Sarah Irving Executive Vice-President and Chief Brand Officer of Irving Oil. "A proud recognition of our team's hard work, dedication, care for our customers, communities and for one another." 

With a flexible work program introduced in early 2022, a LEED-certified home office in Saint John, NB, wellness programming spanning the organization and the addition of personal care days and a vacation purchasing program, Irving Oil continues to strengthen its work environment as a place where employees feel valued.

With more than 4,000 employees across the operations, over the past seven years Irving Oil has been recognized for its initiatives around diversity and inclusion, community programming and benefit offerings.
